The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Thursday that fans won’t be permitted at their September 20, home opener against the LA Rams or beyond.

The Philadelphia Health Commission had previously stated that “it’s unlikely” fans will be permitted in the stadium by the time kickoff is scheduled.

” It’s going to be unlikely that that situation will change by Sept. 20,” Farley said.

Mayor Jim Kenney previously stated that he would strictly follow medical advice when determining whether or not any sporting events could occur with fans in attendance— including the annual Army vs. Navy football game currently scheduled for December.

” If the numbers continue to improve and it’s medically safe to do it, yeah. And if it’s not medically safe to do it, no.” Kenney said.

The announcement comes after the Dallas Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones announced during a video conference that his team is gearing up for fans at AT&T Stadium during the 2020 season. Jones noted that he’s confident Cowboys fans can adhere to any rules for attending games.

In a letter to season ticket holders, the Eagles said they’d communicate information about ticket options for future games in the event the situation changes.
